Looking to accelerate the development of safe and compliant electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vertiports, Anra Technologies and Navos air are collaborating to integrate flightpath procedures into vertiport management services for aircraft operations.

Navos’ instrument products will be incorporated into Anra’s eVTOL software that will provide combination technology for future air taxis and unmanned drones to fly to and from vertiports in urban areas.

Anra’s management system is a web-based software platform that adapts to aircraft, vertiports and locations by exchanging real-time data with services needed to facilitate vertiport operations. This will get Navos’ satellite-based performance-based navigation (PBN), instrument flight procedures (IFPs) and conduct heliport evaluation and designation.

"While many vertiport providers are busy building the physical infrastructure and conceptualizing the passenger experience, ANRA has developed the digital layer,” stated Amit Ganjoo, founder and CEO of ANRA Technologies. “Partnering with NAVOS allows us to bring a more complete solution to the market faster, especially when combined with our Urban Air Mobility traffic management technology."
